Xiaomi is expanding its product portfolio beyond smartphones by entering into new segments. After TVs, laptops and IoT devices, the Chinese company is now entering the gaming monitor market. It has launched two gaming monitors in China including one with a huge 34-inch curved display. The second gaming monitor comes with a 23.8-inch flat display. Xiaomi has seen success in areas like TVs and IoT devices and the new device category is an attempt to turn into a full fledged consumer electronics brand.

The product page for Xiaomi Mi Surface Display notes that the display and the bracket are magnetically snapped together. The monitor also comes with a three-year warranty.

The 34-inch Mi Surface Display is available for RMB 2,499 (around Rs 24,990). However, those who prebook the monitor can get it for RMB 1,999 (around Rs 19,990) and it will go on sale starting October 21.

Alongside the 34-inch curved gaming monitor, Xiaomi is also introducing a standard 23.8-inch monitor.
